I'm with elfary.

 

I won't be able to stop myself from whoring myself on the street (if necessary) to get them.

 

But I think I'm going to wait a bit, read some reviews, sulk ... 

 

But it's inevitable.

And no ... to also echo your comment above ... they are *not* easy to get apart (one of mine is much harder to pull apart than the other).

That said, I'm going to clean mine whenever necessary and if the connection ever loosens to the point that they no longer  perform even when cleaned? Then I'll certainly warranty service (I've had nothing but stellar experiences with Shure's return/warranty process, BTW...with both microphones and headphones but especially headphones. In fact, I got an early pair of Shure E4C's silicon tips stuck in my ear and wrote a sort of funny letter about how long it took me to get it out, which it really did and instead of sending me new nozzles for the E4C's, which I asked for originally, they actually sent me a free pair of brand new Shure SE530s *and* new nozzles for my E4C's; true story). I've also warranty serviced that same pair of free SE530's for a split cable later on and had no issues.

But give the cleaning method a try; you want to so shape the paper towel (with the toothpick) that it fits all the way in to the housing connector.

Best of luck.

wow even with that discount that is ridiculous..what the hell..I'm sure they will sound good but holy crap come on..I just recently lost my 535s clear version and I was and still am sad about it..I was thinking about buying a new pair cause I really liked the sound..but I seen a pair of heir 4ai's for sale with the upgraded cable from heir for 360.00 used only a couple months old so I bought them..brand new with the stock cable these are only 400 bucks..and it got to say for about a hundred less then the 535s they put shure to shame..my opinion of course..but I find these are very well balanced and maybe the mids aren't as lush as the shures but I think are very close..they do everything else much better maybe not as wide of a sound stage as I would Like but now I'm just nit picking..I think shure as much as u did Like them, just lost me..sorry shure but your stuff is over priced as far as I'm concerned..and these heirs are much better looking then the shures to..they are beautiful looking without going to over board...wow that's alot of money for universals...sorry my opinion...

Shure is not the kind of company that brags about snakeoil (like Beats).

Hence i'm convinced that this new flagship is gonna set a milestone in the history of universals.

All of i sudden i've forgoten about gettin' a 64Gb iPhone 5.

All my 2013 gadget expenditure is now aimed at this upcoming Shure product.


Success is going from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm

I think I'll get the 846's but I'll prob wait a year to see if the price drops. I just got a pair of w4's a couple months ago and with a new Shure flagship out I can prob pick up the 535(j)'s cheaper so I'll look for that in the mean time.

Any way you slice it, this is a good thing. Even if the price is prohibitive to even the most dedicated Shure fans.

So i am looking to purchase the Shure se535 LTD (US edition) from the In-motion store located in a nearby airport.  I was looking at the Shure usa website and it states the frequency range of the limited edition Shures are 18Hz – 19.5kHz which are the same as the Asia version.  Can anybody verify if the US version is the same as the Asia counterpart?  It would rip my soul apart if i purchased the US version and find that it was just a reskinned version of the bronze/clear se535 with that terrible treble roll off that people complain about.

From what i read (cant remember which thread was it), only the asia special editions have the enhanced treble. The US version is only reskinned. Also read somewhere that changing the filter also enhances treble

I have a tread on changing the filter. The graphs shows that ltd version is the same as normal 535 plus new filter. Look at my signature(tread on dampers) for more info

I have read some where that that Ltd version that you want makes them more of a v shaped sound..I wanted to get a pair myself....before I lots ny clear pair...by the way I'm still crying over them being lost..please come home daddy misses you so much lmao.. Anyways I decided to keep the clear version because of them being more of a v shape.. I also thought that with the roll off that I really didn't mind the signature..I also think that it's more of the forward mids that made them sound so rolled off in the highs..and I don't think I would trade the mids for anything..I loved that sound..just my opinion...I do miss them though.frown.gif

If you go to the InMotion store (like I did months ago) you can demo the SE535 LTD edition (in store). I brought along my (clear) SE535 for A/B-ing and they essentially sounded the same. I concluded that the Limited Edition was not the same as the Special Edition (the Asian version).

I tried going to the store on Friday but apparently i had to have a airplane ticket to enter through the security gates the InMotion store was located at :( But i set up an *appointment* with the manager of the store on Monday and they said they would process the transaction but not sure about demoing it since it looks like i cant go through the security gates >:(.  I suppose one of the more attractive things i saw on the US variant was that it had a 2 year warranty but seems rather odd that it would be just a reskin of the bronze/clear se535 with just 2 added mic cables.  I would ask the people from Shure but when i came on this thread i saw that people stated that the US version differed from the Asia one.  So being desperate for for that little bit of information I made an account to ask around...thank you for your input :D

Where I live (Memphis TN) you can't go down the concourse to the InMotion store without a boarding pass as well. However, you can be escorted to the store by store employees. It's likely the same in your case. The InMotion employees were very nice and friendly and we set up a time when two employees would be present so one could come and get me.

 

I had to take my shoes and belt off and submit to a minor pat-down at the security entrance to the concourse but I could have stayed in the store all day trying out any of the headphones they had (but I was pressed for time that day).

 

Again, the US version is Limited and (as far as I can tell) the Asian version (with the different tuning) has Special Edition written on the box-cover.

 

BTW, l called Shure's headquarters and they told me the only difference was the color. I (stubbornly) still had to hear it for myself.

I suppose the whole 18hz - 19.5hz on the US variant is throwing me off since the bronze/clear clocks at 18hz -19hz. But if Shure themselves said that there were no differences then I might have to go to AccessoryJack to order the se535ltd-j. My gripe about that is I do not know the shipping time frame since I have never ordered from outside the US.

I'm assuming you mean the SE535 Special (Asian version).  If anything I'd describe the 535 vanilla as slightly 'n' shaped - bass is flat (if anything under-empahsized), mids are forward, and treble is rolled off.  The SE535 Specials are more balanced than V shaped - because they don't have that roll-off - still could use just a little more bass though IMO

 

Apparently the sound sig can be changed (with the normal SE535) by adjusting the filters (http://www.head-fi.org/t/663273/se535-mod-more-sq-improvement-than-cables-dampers)

 

I'm currently trying to get some filters so I can test the theory for myself (but I am very happy with my 535 Specials though).
